The transition from adolescence into adulthood can be an exciting, yet daunting time for young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. Preparing for adulthood may involve entering a new environment, graduating from school, handling different social situations and responsibilities, and accepting changes in a comfortable routine.

CAR is presenting a day long workshop for individuals with autism and their families who are anticipating higher education and/or employment with minimal support. Presenters will share ideas, resources, and tools to help older teens and young adults with ASD find their path to a more independent adult life.

There will be two tracks: one for family members/providers & one for young adults with ASD.

  • Young adults are welcome to come with a support person, as needed
  • Presenters will include experts in autism including psychology, behavior, education, and social work.
  • Young adults will participate in small-group discussions and activities related to navigating ASD as an adult.
  • There will be a lunchtime resource fair with information from support organizations & service providers.

Cost:    All prices include resources, continental breakfast, light lunch and beverages

  • $20 for young adults, parents and caregivers - $5 additional for a TSS or other support person
  • $45 for a family of three or more
  • $35 for a professional without continuing education - $10 additional for participants requesting CEUs

*Price does not include parking, which is available in the visitor’s lot at a reduced rate.

**Please note: If you register but cannot attend, we can apply your payment to a future workshop.
